"Ordinary Love" is the debut single from Paris Bennett, the American Idol fifth place finalist (May 3, 2006) with production Jon Jon Traxx and J. Isaac.

"Ordinary Love" failed to make it onto any charts.

Music video[edit]

The video to Ordinary Love was filmed on January 12, in Minneapolis and directed by Danny Kimura with Dustin Breeding of boy band B5 as the leading man and features her friends from high school. The director said "I sense Paris is hungry for this, and she's going to go for it today."

The video begins with closeups of Bennett and Breeding, with shots of Bennett singing in a red room, driving in a car with her friends, talking on the phone and dancing with friends. Then Bennett discovers Breeding flirting with another girl, breaks up with him and the song changes to I'm So Hot, in which Bennett and dancers are shown dancing in a studio. The video was officially premiered on Yahoo! Music on April 23, 2007.
